External Reviews for Alfred Gratien Champagne Blend Champagne Brut
Firm yet accessible, hereandrsquo;s a medium-bodied Champagne with bread, apple and a hint of coffee. Balanced, with a lingering finish. Drink now.
The light, persistent mousse carries an understated aroma of hazelnuts and cream. Itandrsquo;s soft and velvety on the palate, this it finishes dry and slightly tart. A clean, simple and integrated wine.
A very lean, dry style that focuses on its acidity and green fruits. This makes it a style that needs good bottle aging andmdash; the sample tasted was too young. But for those who like dry, crisp Champagnes, this is beautifully made.
The NV Brut is a wonderfully elegant, classy wine laced with perfumed fruit that carries through to the finish, where smoke and toastiness add further layers of complexity. This mid-weight Champagne is an impeccable wine at the non-vintage level. Disgorged: June, 2008, (not indicated on the label). Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2013. This is an impressive set of wines from Alfred Gratien. The wines are notable for their sheer class and refinement.
Offers lovely balance and a fine, lacy texture, with the firm acidity providing a backbone for the flavors of ripe blackberry and pear fruit, pastry cream, candied lemon zest, almond biscotti, oyster shell and chalk. Disgorged November 13, 2013. Drink now through 2021.
Pale gold. Lively aromas of lemon and orange zest, with deeper pear and melon qualities and a hint of vanilla. Sappy and precise in the mouth, offering citrus flavors that gain flesh and sweetness with air. Finishes with very good clarity and tangy persistence.
Fresh-tasting and creamy, with a hint of oak adding complexity. Apple, peach and grapefruit flavors prevail, with nervy acidity driving the finish. Echoes spice and butter on the finish.
